Bates Thanksgiving Photos

How did the Bates celebrate Thanksgiving? Everyone met in South Carolina for the annual family lunch with Gil's parents--Papa Bill and Mama Jane--and siblings. The four married Bates were also able to spend time with their spouse's relatives. Here are a few snapshots:

  1. Great photos! Can't wait until they're back on!

  2. I think Allie Jane is beyond adorable I love seeing pictures of her,they are all super cute I like her expression in first pic when she is digging in crayon box. She looks so serious but that's why she is cute!

  3. How many siblings do Brandon, Chad, and Whitney have? And are any of them married and have children of their own?

    1. I think Brandon has nine, Chad has eleven, and Whitney has six. I do not know how many are married.

  4. One of my biggest regret is not having kids,I look at your family it brings a lot of joy to me, and a smile on my face,so God bless all of you

  5. in the first photo, the three of them almost look like triplets! or at least related!

  6. Thank you for taking the time to share such wonderful photos of this cherished family. No matter what is going on during the day I know that a visit to the Bates' website will always put a smile on the face, laughter in the air, a tear in the eye and GOD in the heart:)
